The European Commission has made €5 million in prize money available for the best retrofit and innovative fuel technologies for cars and car-derived vans.

Individuals, SMEs, research centres, universities and the industry are eligible to compete for two new funds.

A €1.5 million award will be made to the party for the best technology retrofitting existing diesel engines without increasing fuel consumption, while €3.5 million is up for grabs for a fully innovative conventional fuel engine and power train technology for future vehicles.

The Horizon Prizes will be presented on 20 April 2016 at the Transport Research Arena Conference in Warsaw.
